I have the Okuma Solaris 12' and the 8' models spinning. It seems the Okuma Coronado CD-90 spinner with baitfeeder feature is a good reel for the big boy. I've got the Okuma IS-50 Inspira on the 8' for plugs and such. Served me well so far.
Just got back from Bass Pro Shops with a new Emblem X 4500T. Spooled it up and attached it to my 10' 6" Tica. Thing will definitely hum for sure. Like the reel, and have never heard anything but praise about them. Got a deal on it, 89.63. This is my last rig for a while. Out of Christmas Cash.
Take it easy.
